Last week in Olga there was a small magazine with a picture of Lenine holding his iconic hat and standing in his characteristic "speech" posture. Next to Lenine's picture the magazine wrote the following sentence; "the truth is always concrete". The magazine attributed the sentence to Lenine although it seems to have been also used by Hegel.
In any case, the sentence made me think about the work I do, work that is often in the field of ideas and methods and at some points abstract. While writing my thesis I often think about this issue.
